Muslims are present in almost every region of the world and practicing its teachings. They wanted to know about the history and origin of Islam. And the most common Questioned ask by the Muslim is that! Why was the position of the Qibla changed? Why Allah and Prophet (P.B.U.H) fill it necessary to change the direction of Qibla from Jerusalem to the Masjid-Ul-Aqsa?
So I felt it necessary to put the light on this that why the direction of Qibla was changed! So the reason behind to change the direction of Qibla from Jerusalem to Masjid-Ul-Aqsa is as follow,
The direction of Qibla was changed after the 16 to 17 months later when the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) emigrated from Makkah to Medina. In Makkah, the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) prefer to offer Namaz in the direction of Qibla facing the Masjid-Ul-Aqsa.
But when he emigrated from Makkah to Medina he wasn’t able to do so. When he face Qibla while offering Namaz his back was at Masjid-Ul-Aqsa and if he will face Masjid-Ul-Aqsa then his back will at Qibla. He was in between it.
The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) felt it as a disgrace to his forefather Hazrat Ibrahim as it was his creation. He felt that facing the back to Masjid-Ul-Aqsa id disgrace to Hazrat Ibrahim. The Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) didn’t say this to anyone that he is getting hurt by facing his back to Masjid-Ul-Aqsa.
As we all known that Allah Almighty says in Quran,
“As Allah knows that what is in heart”
So this was only in between Allah and the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) one day he gets so much hurt that he just look up into the sky.
After it, the Allah Almighty reveals as follow,
“We know what makes you upset. So we are changing you to the direction of Qibla facing to the Masjid-Ul-Aqsa so that it makes you Happy”
We can clearly see that the Allah Almighty change the direction of the Qibla so that it could make the Holy Prophet (P.B.U.H) happy. For his happiness, the Allah Almighty changed the direction of Qibla.
It is the wish of all the Muslim to go the Hajj and Umrah and offer the Namaz in the direction of Qibla facing to the Masjid-Ul-Aqsa. And to see the other Holy Places and fulfill all the aspects of the Umrah. Nowadays performing of Umrah is every much easy because many travel agencies started offering 14 Nights Umrah Visa at fewer prices and more facilities to their valuable customers
